Magic the Gathering M11 Sneak Peak

Yep!  It’s almost here, the new Magic the Gathering Core Set, M11.  The tag line for this is:

A set everyone can sink their teeth into.

Walk amongst the elite – The ultimate strategic duelists. The few who can control deadly creatures and wield terrifying sorceries. Battle on countless worlds beyond this one in a quest for supremacy, and know what it means to say, “Here I Rule.

From what I understand this core set, 249 cards, is supposed to be 50% reprints and 50% new stuff.
